NFL Draft trade rumors for 2014 have the Houston Texans considering trading their No. 1 pick. These 2014 NFL Draft trade rumors should interest any team that is looking for a franchise quarterback right away. A report on ESPN from Friday (Jan. 3) has Texans owner Bob McNair confirming the potential. This might be the exact opposite of what fans want to hear about what the offseason could hold for the franchise. It could also make Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville available for another team now.
Talking about his upcoming decision, McNair stated, "Maybe we'll trade down and still get a quarterback that can do the job and get an outstanding defensive player. It's an exciting time. Everything's a moving target. Lot of different pieces." That statement alone indicates that the team is ready to move on from having Matt Schaub or Case Keenum as the starting quarterback. Keenum got eight starts when Schaub folded early in the season, but the team lost all eight of them.
The general manager from the Houston Texans also weighed in on these 2014 NFL Draft trade rumors, stating that, "I don't think you take a particular position just because you need a particular position at any point in the draft, especially the first pick." Maybe this is all a ploy to see what another team would offer up for that first overall selection, but it could also be a strong hint that the team likes what Johnny Manziel has to offer. He is a quarterback that might be available further down in the first round.
